Growing Success

Since September 2010, assessment, evaluation, and reporting for students in Grades 1 to 12 in Ontario schools have been based on the policies and practices described in Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting in Ontario Schools – First Edition, Covering Grades 1 to 12. 

In conjunction with the release of the new Kindergarten program in 2016 a policy document Growing Success – The Kindergarten Addendum: Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting in Ontario Schools, 2016 was provided as a framework for reporting on the Kindergarten program. This document aims to maintain high standards, improve student learning, and benefit students, parents, and teachers in elementary and secondary schools across the province.

 

Journeys in Film

Films have long been overlooked as an educational tool. Films can open our minds, inspire us to learn more, provide a bridge to better understanding major issues of 21st century concern, and compel us to make a difference. When properly used, film can be a powerful educational tool in developing critical thinking skills and exposure to different perspectives. Journeys in Films provides free curriculum guides, lesson plans, and discussion guides to support the use of films as educational tools in your classrooms.
Note: Be sure to follow your school board’s policy about using video (film) in your classroom. Canada’s Fair Dealing Decision Tool will help you evaluate whether you are allowed to use a video resource in your classroom.
